Windows Jenkins does not run mygame.exe

Hello,

I installed Jenkins via a installer.

I could run Unity build and got mygame.exe.
I tried to execute the exe for auto playing.

stage('AutoPlay') {
      steps {
        script{
          def s = """\
${WORKSPACE}\\BW\\z000\\game\\mygame.exe """
			def ret = bat(returnStatus: true, script: s)

But nothing happened, no error.
I replaced mygame.exe with other executable files, but same results.
I think that Jenkins looks like running only executable files under Program Files.
I want to run any .exe in Jenkins.
How should I do?

Thanks.

A StackOverflow article explains that if a Jenkins agent on Windows needs to interact with the Windows desktop (for example, to run “mygame.exe” in automatic play mode), then the agent must be run from the Windows desktop.

When the Jenkins controller is run as a service, it cannot interact with the Windows desktop. You’ll need to define an agent in that Windows controller and run that agent from within Windows desktop. A batch script that starts the agent immediately after Windows login is one way to do that.

Really Thanks!!!
I removed a Windows Jenkins service.
And then simply called

java -jar Jenkins.war

This worked well !
